“Shocking” Memoir on the Rise

After the New York Post broke the embargo on Mimi Alford’s memoir about her 18-month long affair with JFK, Once Upon a Secret, news shows are busily promoting their upcoming interviews with the author. The women of The View discussed why they find the book so shocking (Barbara Walters calls it “particularly sleasy”); Alford will appear on that show on Thursday. The Today Show offered a “sneak peek” at Meredith Viera’s interview with the author, to be aired tomorrow on Rock Center with Brian Williams.
